On June 11, the city of Jacksonville hosted a festival on Laura Street to celebrate the Bicentennial.

Festival attendees visited downtown Jacksonville during a day of events celebrating the city’s 200th year, and enjoyed live performances, exhibits, food trucks, and other family-friendly programming in James Weldon Johnson Park. At the Garden Club booth, children and their families created biodegradable bird feeders to put in their yards and gardens, played cornhole and giant Jenga, and learned about Garden Club programs and events.
